A Daily Devotional
the warmth of God…
Psalm 91:14 "Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. (NIV)
We live in a cold cruel world. Unfortunately, we spend many moments of our life in the coldness of grief, pain, loss, anxiety, and anger. However, God is the opposite of the coldness of our world. God is the warmth of the universe. God is the goodness of the universe. God is the core unity of the universe. When you live in God and you turn toward God, you can feel His warmth come against the cold cruel nature of life. In the cold and bitter nature of grief, we find a warmth and comfort from God helping us deal with grief. In the cold and bitter nature of pain, we find a warmth and comfort from God taking the edge off of the pain…often taking the pain away. In our times of fear and anxiety, we find in God's warmth a help to find the courage to defeat our fears. We find the courage to defeat our anxiety. We find in God the warmth to come against the cold nature of the world so we can work for His glory in spite of every adversity. In our anger and frustration, God comes into our heart to give us His warmth, caring, and love so we can let go of the anger, and let go of the frustration. Then, as we let go, we find the warmth and warm glow of His freedom full of His grace and love.
